Today’s Lesson Work
Tonight’s Independent Work
You will be revisiting the Eatwell plate from Year 7. From that you will be investigating the different food groups. You should already know the nutritional profile of each food group. Based on this knowledge, you will work through find various examples of food products that could be changed to make a product more suitable, more interesting or more profitable.

Complete the design task.
Add today’s literacy words to your word bank & define.
Prepare your shopping list and ingredients and container for next week. Remind yourself of the Eatwell plate: Label and fill in the chart with as many examples as you can think of:
Nutritional contribution
Food Group
Examples of food: to the diet

Food Product
Ingredients / Main components

Alternatives to those components

The Task
In the next lesson, you will be making the dish ‘Porcupines’ which is a meatball based dish served with rice and a tomato based sauce. You have the following design specification to meet next week which you must design and plan for this week and as part of your independent work.
Your new product must:
 Still be a meatball dish, in a sauce and accompanied by a carbohydrate. Follow the recipe as directed with some changes such as:
 Be served on an appropriate alternative to rice as the main carbohydrate.

Write out the new, engineered, reformulated recipe so that you can then draw up your shopping list and action plan ready for next week’s practical class. Must include quantities and processes.
Write out the safety and hygiene concerns and how to limit them.
Identify and write out the special considerations to ensure quality assurance is at its highest.
